Thanks for the query.
Glandular fever is one of viral illnesses that can cause tonsillitis resulting in throat swab must be done to see whether any bacterial infection has taken place on it.
The black spot seems to be a small localized bleeding on the surface of tonsil and should not be worried upon.
Keep on taking the treatment as advised and keep a watch on the tonsils of your daughter.

Please revert to me for any further clarification.
Best of luck
